Buying a dog or cat from a breeder or pet store or through a website is a consumer transaction covered under consumer protection laws.

If you purchased a sick puppy or kitten from a breeder, pet store or from a website and believe the sickness is attributable to the breeder or that broker, contact the Attorney General’s office and make them aware of this issue. If you believe a breeder or pet store is using false claims through its advertising (i.e. website, print ads, on the phone, in person), report this as well. Keep copies of ads.

On the website, they list a telephone hotline as well as a Consumer Complaint Form.
